ALiEM AIR | Psychosocial 2020 Module

Welcome to the AIR Psychosocial Module! After carefully reviewing all relevant posts from the top 50 sites of the Social Media Index, the ALiEM AIR Team is proud to present the highest quality online content related to psychosocial emergencies. 5 blog posts within the past 12 months (as of July 2020) met our standard of online excellence and were curated and approved for residency training by the AIR Series Board. We identified 2 AIR and 3 Honorable Mentions. We recommend programs give 3 hours (about 30 minutes per article) of III credit for this module.

AIR Stamp of Approval and Honorable Mentions

In an effort to truly emphasize the highest quality posts, we have 2 subsets of recommended resources. The AIR stamp of approval is awarded only to posts scoring above a strict scoring cut-off of ≥30 points (out of 35 total), based on our scoring instrument. The other subset is for “Honorable Mention” posts. These posts have been flagged by and agreed upon by AIR Board members as worthwhile, accurate, unbiased, and appropriately referenced despite an average score.

ALiEMU Relaunch: Get a new account to check out our new look, digital badges, and courses

ALiEMU relaunch

ALiEMU is 5 years old, and we are moving out of our toddler stages and growing up developmentally. As we all rely more heavily on digital resources during the COVID-19 era, we felt that this was the perfect time for a major upgrade. Our team remains committed to the motto of “Be Free to Learn,” and in accordance with this mantra, all of the content on our custom learning management system is open-access for anyone interested in learning about emergency medicine topics. We also remain committed to helping EM residency programs who need a trusted resource for asynchronous conference credit (Individualized Interactive Instruction). We have hosted 12,000 learners and awarded 40,000 course certificates since 2015, but we are starting fresh with a new user database after the relaunch. Why and what is new?
